Hice el tour con mi hija adolescente, fue maravilloso, recorrer el parque El Retiro de esta manera es genial!! Te llevan y cuentan cosas que si lo haces solo no te enteras. Súper divertido y entretenido. El guía lo más!! No recuerdo su nombre, solo que es venezolano, pero muy amable y atento. Repetiría sin dudas.

We had a lovely segway tour of Retiro Park, with Chris. They were flexible about a last minute change of day and the tour itself was wonderful. Chris was fun and knowledgeable. The tour is highly recommended, no prior experience needed.
